's the ultimate game of chicken. by the way, a new plan that works in taxing bank assets and even grabbing some money from the church. how about that. meanwhile, back here at home once again i'm going to stop this nonsense about a new national internet sales tax. my pal grover norquist will help me declare war on it. this is a big government tax grab that we will debate. >> speaking of taxes, guess who is not paying them? more and more federal workers are tax cheats. why shouldn't tax cheats just be fired? it's that easy on the "kudlow report." and we begin right now. first up tonight, the cyprus crisis continues. riots are forming in the streets. cnn's own chief international correspondent michelle caruso-cabrera is with us tonight. >> cyprus is going to do something that's called "resolving a bank." like all tough things in life, we use euphemisms. tonight the head of the central bank has asked parliament to give him permission to give him new powers of resolution authority. what he will do with that resolution authority is he will take cyprus's most troubled bank, he's going to take the good
our spending issues and would not incorporate $1 trillion or more of increased taxes which will just simply go to more spending. how could we possibly support a budget with a $16.7 trillion debt that plunges us further into debt, with a staggering increase in debt, and also spending that doesn't reduce spending but simply reduces the rate of growth of spending, which is a step but nothing nearly appropriate to what we are facing. so this budget grows government. let's not make any excuses. it grows government by increasing spending. and it grows government by a massive increase in taxes. just after we've had one a few months ago. and not counting the massive increase in taxes that's going to occur beginning in 2014 with the implementation of obamacare. when we add that up, when we look at the cost of that, we face dire circumstances. and you would think that the budget being offered to us would not increase debt by 42%, but would address the real problem. now, i know there's been a dispute about how much this budget revenue, taxes are increased. some say $1.5 trillion. those that hav
congress, including the deal on the bush tax cuts that were made at year end. $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next ten years. and all also agree that $is.8is- that $1.8 trillion was gutting expenses and a little more than $600 billion of this was revenues achieved through the year-end bush tax cut deal. so everwhelmingly what has been done thus far has been in spending cuts rather than new revenues. it is very important for us to know that. it is very important for folks to realize that democrats are willing to make are hard calls about spending. we've done it already. but the question before this body and the question before the house now is going forward, what do we do to achieve additional deficit reduction that's consistent with having a growing economy? and the approaches of the senate and the house on this could not be more different. the house approach basically says that all additional deficit reduction should be achieved by cutting spending. by looking at one side of the balance sheet. i do not know of a business, i do not know of a family, i do not know of other u
of revenue growth, the largest portion of that being our property tax which is our largest overall local revenue source, though business taxes and our hotel and sales taxes are as growing over that time period. this slide highlights for you wla the projected growth rates are in the plan, so you can see, you know, stronger growth rates in the early first two years and more moderate projections in the subsequent years. on the expenditure side, our -- the city's expenditures are projected to increase by 1.1 billion dollars over the five year period, that's about 25% growth, and the largest share of that is our salary and fringe benefit costs which are growing we're projecting 460 million dollars, there are a number of citywide cost increase that is are assumed in this plan, things like fully funding our capital plan, our it plan and equipment costs, the plan also assumes that we fully fund inflation on grants as well as other non-personnel services, so that's all the contracts, grants, and other types of expenditures that are not staff costs. >> supervisor breed? >> yes, can you please expl
's implementation, the bulk of the taxes are in effect. the benefits and mandates kick in next year. tracy? tracy: clearly, already seeing effects. cvsments you on the scale and tell them how fat you are. you talked about the debt ceiling, what did he say about that? >> i did. one of the next fights comeing up here, we could expect to hit the ceiling this summer in august. he says we're not going to agree to raise the debt ceiling without doing something about entitlements. mcconnell says this brings the president to the table so republicans want an equal number of cuts or more cuts than whatever amount they agreed to raise the debt ceiling by. mcconnell says it's got to come from entitlements because you can't do enough of what we've seen so far, discretionary spending. tracy: they want us off the beach in the summer. we'll have another debt ceiling fight, be here in august sweating it out again. >> yeah, can't wait. tracy: i know, me too. rich, take the vacation now, thanks. >> yeah. tracy: ha-ha, okay, you may want to sit for the next story. members of congress workedded together and passed a
, our chair says that this is a pro-growth, pro-middle-class budget. i say it's pro-tax, pro-spend, pro-debt budget. it's a budget of deep disappointment. it's a budget that comes nowhere near doing the things necessary to put america on a sound path. it's a budget that does indeed reflect the stark differences between our parties. it's rather remarkable to me the extent to which our majority party in the united states senate has no interest in producing a budget that actually balances and actually puts america on the right path. they say they care about growth, and i know they do. i know they would like to see the economy grow more and more jobs be created because we have had the slowest recovery during this recession since any time after the world war ii, at least. very, very slow. but we have done something to a degree we have never done before, and that is borrow and spend to stimulate the economy. and someone has compared borrowing and spending to stimulate the economy to the idea of someone taking a bucket, scooping up water in one end of the swimming pool and pouring it into the
as quickly as possible. now, we had the discussion earlier about taxes and we thought that we had worked the tax problem for and everybody preserved people's taxes for 99% of the people and we thought that there were going to be some spending cuts coming. somebody sent me this little chart that i have to share. this says "republican" on it. "okay, i'll raise taxes if you promise to cut spending." well, lucy, it's a "deal." but we've been watching this cartoon for years and years and we know what happens. when we go to pick up the spending cuts, the football suddenly gets lifted out of the way and we wind up on our back. the american public winds up on its back. that's not the kind of spending cuts we're looking for. we're looking for some real spending cuts. not just a decrease in the growth but some real spending cuts. and there's -- there's a way to do those. wyoming has been faced with probably an 8% in reduction in its income. how did it handle it? the governor, seeing that coming, got ahold of every department and program and said, i need a plan from you for how you would cut 2%, ho

indicated around incentivizing small businesses, 0-25, but offering them tax credits to make the cost of coverage from the employer's perspective more affordable. >> okay, great, thank you. >> commissioner o'brien. >> would you say in your opinion, that there is a lot of overlap between the two programs? i mean i'm trying to see if the health care act is left in case, which is obviously going to be the place and the other option was taken out, the health security, would that leave a wide slot or section of people that are vulnerable and not covered that wouldn't fall under the umbrella of the affordable care act? i'm trying to -- it's extremely complicated and we're finding out it's going to take a lot of work to research how these programs work on their own first, and then between each other. and i was wondering would it be easier to amend one of them to sort of just be adjusted to fill in the gaps of the care act that doesn't cover it? so that it would be easish to manage the whole thing? would time be sent better trying to engineer it that way, then trying to evolve both of

and a member of the ways and means tax writing committee. if you would, starts by bringing us up-to-date on where the house is when it comes to the continuing resolution and the 2014 budget. guest: the continuing resolution which funds the government was passed out of the house a couple of weeks ago. the senate has been dealing with that. they passed it last evening. it is back in the house, and we will likely pass that today, which is good news because one of the things that we included was the spending reduction, the appropriate spending reduction so we can try to get this economy back on track. excitingt is an activity that is been on the house floor these past two days. we will likely pass that out of the house of representatives today. this is a budget by paul ryan that will allow us to get to balance. that means the government will stop sending more money than it takes in by the end of the decade, which is really exciting. what that allows us to do is to get the economy rolling, jobs being created and provide more certainty so young people coming out of college know there i

for increased city tax revenue. so i submit, mr. martin has declined them to about 13 million. that's significant reductions in the transient occupancy tax, significant reduction in payroll tax. and those reductions are larger than the one-third reduction to overall expenditures partly derivative in large part by the number of sipped katz. greater numbers of syndicates leads to disproportionate increases in the transient occupancy tax as well as payroll taxes paid. ~ the retail taxes have also declined, but back out a third, same as decline in overall expenditures. we have a net decline of about $10 million projected in city revenues. >> so, just -- mr. eagan talked about a 6.1 increase, million dollar increase in hotel tax revenue. it would require a 7% increase in hotel tax over a three-month period. what is your response to that, which is a significant increase over a three-month period. do we expect during this time that's what we'll have for the america's cup event? >> my expectation for rev par is that it would see a significant bump. having in addition between 5 and 25,000 pe
about the action by the board of equalization to improve the increase in the state gas tax. and just to clarify what that action was in 2009, 10. the state legislature adopted legislation that basically converted of what used to be proposition 42, which was funded from the sales tax on gas into a pure, based funding source. and to accomplish that, they had to develop language that directed the board of equalization, to maintain the same level of gross revenues, that the combined base excise tax and ropcysing 42 would have generated. s so the action to approve a 3.5 percent hike in the gas tax is consistent with what would have been the taxes that the motorists would have been paying without the tax swap and the board of equalization approval. in fact, in many ways, the board of equalization approval is almost ministerial in effect and nobody knows what would happen if they had would rejected it. that has happened and the money generates 3.5 percent and the tax is an additional 3.5 cents per gallon which is 500 million a year and it is dedicated to local streets and roads and to the s

romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my point: these democrats get
